Makati Mayor Abby Binay asked the Department of Education (DepEd) on Thursday to let the city government retain administration over three public schools located in two “Embo” barangays that were recently placed under Taguig’s jurisdiction. One of the three schools is Makati Science High School in Cembo, the city’s lone science high school. The two other schools, Fort Bonifacio Elementary School and Fort Bonifacio High School in West Rembo, are being eyed for integration with the University of Makati as its teacher education laboratory school. “A favorable resolution from the Vice President will allow Makati to move forward with our plans for enhanced programs and services in the said schools,” Binay said. Sought for comment, DepEd spokesperson Michael Poa said their legal office was studying the matter, including position papers submitted by Makati and Taguig officials. “We are waiting for the Legal Strand’s recommendation,” he added. —RUSSEL LORETO AND DEMPSEY REYES
